Yes, it's a complex of buildings, park, transportation hub, museum..Everything is connected..

Dino, thanks so much for posting the pics - they are AWESOME.

Question though - when I see the actual construction I see where WTC 2 and WTC 3 are going but I don't see the work on the transportation hub. Is the transit hub between towers 2 and 3 or is it between 1 and 2 and therefore not in these pictures?

The Transportation Hub will be located between Tower 2 and 3. Go to the thread, or visit PANYNJ's website for more information.

ok but I have seen posts about big beams being put up for it yet in these pictures you see no evidence of anything. Where is it? And I guess we are a long ways from the soaring beams that define it going up?

yes it is a long ways from being very visible. however, it would probably be a better idea to ask these questions in the thread for the transit hub.

Right now work is more focused on the memorial side of Hub..Between north pool and future Greenwich Street..Check out Hub's thread for more info..Everything is there..

Thank you. That's a very big area! Was it always connected before 9/11? I remember when I was in NY, taking the subway and the station was closed beneath ground zero, but I never could get a good impression of the whole area. How big it is and what is connected to another.

They said 2 and 3 WTC should be on the street level by 2012..Transportation hub somewhere in 2012..2WTC will probably be the first one, before the end of this year..3WTC somewhere in winter..It's impossible to tell by the month..

I'm wondering that too, but this hole is probably from the cleaning and preparing. They didn't start to build up this hub yet, so who knows, maybe they will fill to some point (height) with soil.

Nope..This is the level of bedrock..Everything on this site is gettin' built on the bedrock..Even Transportation Hub..All this space will be used..If you look closely they started with foundations for the Hub..Tower crane is there..Everything will grow from that level..

Here's one little pic..For more info check Transportation Hub Thread..

Yep, this is still a cool building. Hell, I'll be happy as long as it gets built to its full height. If the design has to change in order for that to happen, so be it.
